I was raised in a small town in South Dakota. I am currently attending South Dakota State University, where I am pursuing a degree in Electronics Technology. I work at Daktronics (a worldwide leader in scoreboards and LED signs). I have a photography business that I run on the side, mostly photographing couples and weddings. I enjoying being in nature, reading, and music. I play piano and clarinet, and someday I hope to pick up the Cello.
